Becoming a member of RIMS opens the door to several opportunities to enhance your research and clinical practice. Here are some of the benefits of becoming a member of RIMS:
- Annual Conference and Workshop at a reduced registration fee
Individual members as well as a maximum of six professionals from a member centre can get RIMS Annual Conference and a RIMS workshop registration fees at a special reduced member’s price.
- Join a Special Interest Group (with additional seminars and programmes)
We have a number of Special Interest Groups (SIGs). These groups meet at least once a year during the RIMS annual conference. Each SIG also organises an additional meeting annually, which is supported financially by RIMS.
RIMS members are offered free registration to this SIG meeting and the social dinner is also free of charge (when face to face).
- Eligibility to apply for the RIMS Grant Programme
RIMS offers a Grant Programme to support multi-centre studies, a shared best practice network or a SIG project. RIMS supports one grant annually. This is a great opportunity to develop or expand your networks across Europe.
- Take advantage of the Fellowship Exchange Programme
RIMS offers a Fellowship Exchange Programme to Early Career professionals from Europe, preferably non-medical doctors, to facilitate their training in MS reha¬bilitation at RIMS member centres. The aim of the programme is to promote a multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitation in MS, and to encourage the exchange of information and professional growth for those working in the field of MS.
- Get access to Members only e-Educational Material on the RIMS website
Online education materials (podcasts, meeting reports, webcasts from conference presentations, and outcome measures) are available on the RIMS website and provide useful information for your research or clinical practice.
